Grab your swim suits and running shoes for the 2017 Boston Splash and Dash on July 29, 2017.
Boston’s only triathlon is inviting youth throughout Greater Boston to suit up for the annual Splash and Dash event, combining running and swimming. Part of USA Triathlon’s Splash & Dash Youth Aquathlon Series, the event is designed to introduce young athletes ages 7-15 to the sport of triathlon.
Now in its fifth year, the USA Triathlon Splash & Dash Youth Aquathlon Series is comprised of fifty events across the country. The focus of the events is participation, rather than competition and is geared towards exposing youth participants to the world of multisports.
The Boston Splash and Dash Event will take place at the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR) Carson Beach on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 3:00 p.m., the day before the 2017 Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon. The event will consist of a swim followed by a run.
Athletes will be placed in one of four age groups: ages 7-8, ages 9-10, ages 11-12, and ages 13-15. The 7-8 and 9-10 age groups will swim 100 yards and run an untimed 1K. The 11-12 age group will swim 200 yards and run an untimed 2K. The 13-15 age group will swim 200 yards and run a timed 2K.
The swimming will take place at Carson Beach in South Boston near the McCormack Bathhouse and will be in shallow water. The run will take place around the Transition Area of the Boston Triathlon and the DCR Mother’s Rest Field.
